Tutorial on solving the gear pyraminx.
I couldn't find any videos on how to solve this puzzle online, so I decided to record my own. I also decided to make it in English, instead of Spanish, so it would appeal to a broader audience (sorry for the language mistakes).
Puzzle originally designed by Timur Evbatyrov, factory made by Mefferts:
First batch had a serious turning problem, which could be solved with a simple modification (applied to the puzzle in this video). You can see the details below:
Please excuse the image cuts. My camera can only record in 30 sec batches.
And sorry for the camera angle in certain moments. This was my first tutorial video; I will get better with time (hopefully).
You can also watch a complementary example solve (commented), in which I apply the concepts explained in the tutorial:
R' L R L'
L R' L' R
(clockwise) R U R' U R U R' U
(counterclockwise) R U' R' U' R U' R' U'
Small edges flip:
R' L R L' - Turn puzzle - L R' L' R
Thanks for watching!
